Golden Hare printed!

I first printed copper on navy, to make a prototype dress but didn’t really like it; so washed it out before fixing.

 

I then printed gold on yellow. Happier with this but I know from using metallic inks in the past, it is a nightmare to keep the screen from drying out between lays – and sure enough there is some irregularity between the first lays and the final ones. If I’d used non-metalics I’m sure it would be a better print……..

 

but pleased with the way the image lines up. Don’t know why the background here appears to be much paler than it is, it is in fact yellow as in this photo below:

I now have to move the print along, re-pin it and continue the print for the width of the fabric – then the pattern I’ve made will be placed on it and a dress made!  I hope!
